Verse 1: -------- E bass My daddy was a family bassman, my mama was an engineer, and I was born one dark gray morn' A bass E E6 riff with music comin' in my ears, in my ears. Chorus: ------- A bass (played 4 times here) They call me Baby Driver, and once upon a pair of wheels E hit the road and I'm gone A7 G#7 G7 F#7 (<-play in quick succession) what's my num-ber, F#7 I wonder how your engine feels, ba ba ba ba ba, E A7 G#7 G7 F#7 (<-play in quick succession) Scoot down the road, what's my num-ber, F#7 A E I wonder how your engine feels. E7 Badadaaaa

Break: scat vocals: (basically same chord progression as 1st verse) ------ E A E E6 riff Oooooooo doodadoooooouie Verse 2: (same as verse 1) -------- My daddy was a prominent frogman, my mama's in the Naval reserve, when I was young, I carried a gun, but I never got the chance to serve, I did not serve. Chorus 2: same as chorus 1 --------- Saxo Solo: ---------- Play over the chords for the verse and chorus, with harmonies by Simon and Garfunkel and motorcycle noises Verse 3: -------- My daddy got a big promotion, my mama got a raise in pay. There's no one home, we're all alone; Oh, come into my room and play, yes, we can play. Chorus 3: --------- I'm not talkin' about your pigtails, I'm talkin' 'bout your sex-appeal hit the road and I'm gone What's my number, I wonder how your engine feels, ba ba ba ba ba, Scoot down the road, what's my number, I wonder how your engine feels. End: Plays E E6 riff for a while, with dodododoooos. Then shifts gears:
F F6e:----1--1-1--1-1|B:----1--3-1--3-1|G:----2--2-2--2-2|x lotsD:----x--x-x--x-x|A:----3--3-3--3-3|E:--1-1--1-1--1-1|
Motorcycle noises, and commentary... "and the world champion is completing his run off the spectator side...."fade out.
